Jitter Gen family of objects: can I get values from a previous frame?

March 26, 2014 | 9:37 am

Quick question – I’m creating a visual effect in Jitter that requires me to use values from a previous frame so I can compare them to the current frame. It seems this isn’t possible within a Gen patcher – you can only work with values from the current frame. Is that correct?

I’m sure I can buffer the frame outside the Gen patcher and do it that way. I just wanted to know if there was a way to do it all within Gen.

I don’t believe so, but you can simply loop the output of your Gen patcher back to an additional input, and you’ll have the previous frame available that way.

Of course – thanks Jesse.
